Review History


To increase transparency, PeerJ operates a system of 'optional signed reviews and history'. This takes two forms: (1) peer reviewers are encouraged, but not required, to provide their names (if they do so, then their profile page records the articles they have reviewed), and (2) authors are given the option of reproducing their entire peer review history alongside their published article (in which case the complete peer review process is provided, including revisions, rebuttal letters and editor decision letters).

Basic reporting

mention if the plants of Jatropha are toxic or non toxic,
It would be appropriate to change the title and that is more specific, as are different agro-climatic conditions throughout southeastern Mexico of "Reproductive biology of the plant Jatropha curcas biofuel in Its center of origin" to "Reproductive biology of the plant Jatropha curcas biofuel from Soconusco, Chiapas. "describe in detail the climatic conditions of the Soconusco

Experimental design

Recommend that the study had been conducted in a plantation of a hectare, as live fences show the differences with a real plantation,
a soil analysis is recommended to determine the content of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium correlate the results with flowering and weather conditions (temperature and average rainfall)

Validity of the findings

increase the number of plants evaluated because only were ten plants

Basic reporting

I found this paper to be relatively straight forward and to the point. Being removed from botany for as long as I have did amount to constant breaks in the reading to refresh myself with certain terminologies and forgotten concepts. Once made comfortable I had no issue with the work. Aside from some minor grammatical suggestions I found it needed little editing.

Experimental design
